Videos are not displayed into Screenly OSE

Hi, I’m using OpenShot video editor exporting on different formats and none of those are being recognized by Screenly and only a black screen is shown, I’ve added the assets as mp4 (h.264), mp4 (mgep4), avi (mpeg4), do you know if should I use any specific format to export the video for Screenly OSE to take it?

The following is the log from the balena cloud main page:

Hey @atruji77!
The format of the video that looks acceptable for Screenly.
I can offer try running a video directly from omxplayer or mplayer(Screenly uses these players) if you could. I think so you will learn more about your issue.
